FanTeam and the Scout Gaming Group are delighted to announce the opening of our 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League SECOND HALF Season Game, which has a minimum guaranteed progressive prize pool of £100,000.
Due to the 2022 World Cup taking place halfway through the Premier League season, we decided to change things up a little last year by offering a First Half only season game, which finished and paid out in Gameweek 16, just in time for users to enjoy and participate in our World Cup fantasy games.
Whilst our single-entry Full season games are still running, as well as other season-long formats on other sites, we’ve decided to give all new and existing users a second chance in our Fantasy Premier Second Half Season Game, which starts January 13th at 20:00GMT/21:00CET.
Whether you’ve had a below-par start to the season, or are flying high and want to replicate your early success, our Second Half season game has something for everyone and is not to be missed.
Please see below further information on how to play and get involved in our 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League Second Half Season Game.
A full breakdown of our £100,000 Fantasy Premier League Second Half Season Game Rules are provided below in both text and an info-graphic.

Like with the Game Rules above, the scoring on Fanteam has slight differences to other season-long fantasy football games you might play on other platforms, but the image below gives a clear guide to our 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League Second Half Season Game scoring system.
Please note, if you participated in our 2022/23 First Half or Full season games, the Scoring Rules are identical to those contests.
A full breakdown of the Scoring System is provided below in the info-graphic, followed by important scoring attributes and key rules we want to draw your attention to, to ensure you have the best experience playing this contest on Fanteam.
Full Match Bonus: If an attacking player (Forward or Midfielder) stays on the pitch for the entire game (90 mins & including injury time) they will pick up an additional point. Players that regularly play 90-minutes a team could be worth considering.
Goalkeeper Save Points: Goalkeepers will earn 0.5 points for every save they make. Therefore, a goalkeeper on a team that allows the opposition a lot of low quality shots, can really rack up the points, even if they don’t keep a clean-sheet.
Impact Points: If the team wins the period a player is on the pitch, the player will be awarded 0.3 points. However, if they lose the period (example: subbed off whilst losing 1-0) they’re on the pitch, they will be deducted 0.3 points.
Shots on Target: Midfielders and Strikers will be awarded 0.4 points for each Shot on Target, whilst Defenders will earn 0.6. If your Goalkeeper somehow manages a Shot on Target then he will get 1 point. This scoring rule certainly gives fantasy bosses something to think about when selecting their attacking assets.
What counts as a shot on target?
- A shot on target is a shot that’s going in the goal, but is stopped by the last line of defence. This could be a goalkeeper, an opposing player ‘on the line’, or even your own teammate if they’re goal hanging!
- Points for a shot on target are not awarded when a goal is scored from the shot, either if the player is the scorer or is awarded the assist.
- What is a wildcard? A wildcard allows you to make unlimited free transfers throughout a gameweek. For example, you may want to play your wildcard if your team is underperforming, you have lots of injuries or players are playing more than once. When using your wildcard you must still stay within your budget.
- When can I use my wildcard? You can use your wildcard for Gameweek 2 and onwards, up to Gameweek 19.
- What happens to my saved transfers when I use my Wildcard? When playing a wildcard, any saved free transfers will be lost once you activate your Wildcard – this process cannot be reversed by Fanteam, or you. You will be back to 1 free transfer the following gameweek after activating your Wildcard.
- Can I cancel my Wildcard? No. Once you have confirmed your wildcard it is final and cannot be reversed by you, or us, so please be careful.
- Do all transfers have to be made at the same time when using my Wildcard? No. Any transfers you make within the Gameweek you activate your Wildcard are free up until that Gameweek deadline.
- Can I play my Wildcard after I have made free and/or paid transfers? Yes. If you have used your free transfer(s) and/or made additional transfers for a points deduction (-4 points per additional transfer), then those point deductions will be cancelled if you activate your Wildcard before the gameweek deadline.
£100,000 PRIZE POOL INFO
Our 2022-23 Fantasy Premier League Second Half season game tournament will have a progressive prize pool. This means the guaranteed £100,000 prize pool for this First Half season game will be paid out, even if the contest doesn’t fill.
However, should the prize pool exceed the minimum entries required to hit the £100,000 minimum guarantee, then the prize pool will continue to grow above and beyond £100K with each new entry, with no cap. We are confident this will happen!
The amount of players who will win a cash prize is this contest is fixed at 20% of total entrants. For example, if there are 10,000 entrants then the top 2,000 will win a cash prize.
The distribution of the prizes will change automatically according to the number of total entries, ranging from around 1.5x the entry fee for the lowest places to a large prize for the first place winner.
In this specific £100K First Half Season Game contest, the outright winner will win a guaranteed 1st place prize of 10% of the total prizepool. For example, if the total prizepool at the end of the registration period is £150,000, then the first place finisher will receive £15,000, guaranteed.
The MINIMUM 1st place prize for this contest is £10,000!
All other paid spots will be calculated automatically as more users enter, so be sure to keep an eye on the ‘Prizes’ tab inside the contest itself for up to date numbers.
